How do we make it easier to manage your product digitally?

One of the constant challenges that the product team at BevSpot faces is prioritizing the right improvements. In our effort to continuously improve BevSpot, one area we’ve been focusing on is how to make it easier to manage all of the product that establishments have.

Across all items, recipes, menus, and seasonal products that an establishment could feature, our team understands that there are a multitude of factors that are perpetually changing: prices, vendors, and even product categories, just to name a few. We want to make it easier for managers and owners to effectively manage those changes within their BevSpot accounts.

To address this issue, we’ve created the new My Items page for BevSpot users—a place where you’ll be able to see all of the items currently in your establishment based on your inventory and order entries. (No more hunting through various menus/modals across different pages!)

Currently, on this page, you can:

  • edit items individually or in bulk
  • add new items
  • update your distributor list

This is only the beginning of our plans for this new page. In the future, we have plans to include the ability to:

  • delete old items
  • archive seasonal items
  • organize your various inventory areas
  • set and manage all inventory pars

Another thing you’ll probably notice is that the page looks different than the others we’ve released in the past. It’s simpler, cleaner, and, most importantly, faster! This is the start of a shift in our design philosophy, which you will notice in future iterations of our platform.

One important part of feature launches is listening and adjusting to feedback. With that in mind, what do you think of this new page? Let us know in the comments below and explore more insight behind the scenes here in our Upkeep series.
